“Iranian scholar-activist Yassamine Mather on the nationwide protest movement in Iran and around the globe, sparked by the brutal murder of Mahsa Amini in police custody for wearing a loose hijab. The violent response of the theocratic regime, cracking down and killing protestors, hasn’t quelled the movement. This is the biggest challenge the Islamic government has faced in its 43 years of rule. Women everywhere are chopping off their hair in solidarity. We get Yassamine’s take.”
